|Center Star, 2013|
This quilt was started last November during a Liberated Medallion workshop with Gwen Marston in Sisters. It was my first quilting class, and first sewing class since the 7th grade. We had fun, and several of us spent the rest of the weekend together in the retreat with Sue Spargo, which is where I started the "Wild-Eyed Susans" quilt. It's nice to have both done within a few months of starting them, and they will be displayed at the NW Quilters 39th Annual Show in April.
More experienced quiltmakers roll their eyes when I say I have a no-UFO policy, but I'm going to try to stick to my guns. There are things I experimented with, which I'll never finish, but I don't consider them UFOs since I don't intend to finish them. At this time I have just a couple UFOs, and I'm not starting anything new until I finish one of them. The one I'd like to finish next is called Oregon July and the goal is to have it ready in time for the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show this summer. It will be my eighth completed quilt.
